Start Marcum v Phillies (Halladay)?

Postby misterf » Thu Sep 08, 2011 11:15 pm

10-team, 5x5 roto keeper league:

I am a bit over pace on innings, so I get to pick and choose my starts down the stretch.

Should I start Marcum vs. Roy Halladay and the Phillies?

Marcum has been solid, but that is a rough machup.

If it helps, I have approx 100 innings left to use, and here are all my SP's :

Tim Lincicum
Cole Hamels
Shaun Marcum
Madison Bumgarner
Yovani Gallardo
Jhoulys Chacin

Thanks in advance.......of course, WHIR

That's a tough one. I have both guys on my roster, in a must win (down by a good bit) night in round one of our playoffs. I have Halladay, Marcum, Hudson, and Nolasco going tonight, and if they can't get it done, I'm done. I've decided to start Halladay over Marcum and sit Marcum, because if I start both and one wins while one loses (especially if the losing one has a bad game), the points for winning in my league are equal to the points for losing, so they cancel one another out. So I'd be betting on the loser of the 2 scoring more than 20 points. Meh.

In your situation, I would say sit Marcum. With your roster, you should have no problem finding 100 decent innings from that group without having to dip into Marcum tonight. Just my 2 cents.
